Pastor Richards is a corrupt and wholly insane televangelist from Mars, Alabama, who promises salvation (in the form of a radiation-proof giant living space/effigy of Richards) to all those who pay him very large donations (he later reveals that he was actually planning on using the money to build himself a palace mansion in Hawaii) when a guest on VCPR's Pressing Issues. By the end of the segment, Pastor Richards snaps, and, disgusted by Barry Stark's nudism, pulls a gun on Stark and shoots him in the genitals, while Jan Brown passes out. Barry survives and "is in need of a proctologist". Pastor Richards also ends up claiming the station as his own for a short while. Pastor Richards was invited to a boat party by Juan Cortez, the only time he actually appears in the game.
